Warren County Spotlight

October 11 -14, 2024

Return to Spotlight Page

The Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology (PSO) is promoting counties across the state to explore its hotspots and find as many birds as we can.

On October 11th, join us as we lead a 4-day concentrated effort to bird Warren County! This is another one of the state’s most under-birded counties but there is so much to explore. We are hitting this NW county in the hopes of getting some late fall migrants, both large and small. We have field trips & birding activities lined up for all 4 days. Warren currently sits 54th all time for species out of 67 and 61st all time for total checklists. It needs some attention and love.

As a group, we want to document as many birds as possible during this extended weekend. Birders are invited to tag along with others or explore the county’s game lands, water areas, fields and wild areas on their own terms.

Notable hotspots for the county can be found here https://pabirds.org/siteguide/pacountypage.php?CountyID=62

And the ebird hotspot link https://ebird.org/region/US-PA-123/hotspots

We have created a Discord text/chat group for that spotlight to get out the word for rarities and group information, to join that, here is that link or you can search for the Warren County Spotlight under the PSO Spotlights & Events. https://discord.com/channels/1111453242149306441/1201592524075192482

For anyone who is going to be birding during 4-day birding spotlight, we ask you share your ebird checklists with PSO Birding Data then we can keep track easier. We have also created an eBird Trip Report link where pictures, checklists, etc. will be available for everyone to enjoy.
Here is the link for the eBird trip report https://ebird.org/tripreport/253364

We will be sharing pics and updates on the Warren County Birding Spotlight event page on Facebook, here is that link https://www.facebook.com/share/ECVnv1hxcLPyVear/

Birders of all skill levels are invited to join-in and contribute! If you just want to learn more about birds or you can help others and our challenge, we want you to be involved!

More details to be shared closer to the date.
